Christmas is coming

So... I finally got the tree decorated. It's been up since Saturday, but took this long to get finished. Presents are almost all bought. It's time to get into the Christmas spirit.

So, thanks to Emma for this great Christmas meme!

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate..... Totally hot chocolate. I REALLY do not understand the whole egg nog thing. Ummm, ewe....
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? He sets them all up by the fireplace.
3. Coloured lights on tree/house or white.... WHITE!!!! And, if it's colored, it better follow a theme... none of this "random" stuff.
4. Do you hang mistletoe? Nope
5. When do you put your decorations out? After my birthday Nov 21. Sometimes it takes awhile though. Lights aren't up yet... too much snow - aack!
6. What is your favourite holiday dish (excluding dessert)? Perogies!
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child: It's sad... but I don't really have one. I really enjoyed Christmas' that we went to Saskatchewan and stayed with my Baba and Gido. I always enjoyed all the games my Baba played with me.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Dread it!!!
12. Can you ice skate? Have you ever fallen on the ice? Yes, I can ice skate... though I haven't done it in AGES. Have I fallen? Probably... don't remember though, so it couldn't have been bad.
